Ideal for entertaining and cooking and with plenty of room for a large dining table.
On the other side is a large fitted cupboard with the refrigerator, freezer and oven.
The kitchen/lounge overlooks the square of charming Houthaven, and in the future – the canal – which is yet to be built.
The kitchen/lounge connects to the outdoor space via French doors. The kitchen is a bright oasis, with large windows in the corners.
Passage to the expansive west-facing living room, showcasing the property’s true eye-catcher, an enormous nearly 6-meter tall window and a view of the elegant open gallery surrounded by custom contemporary black steel finishes. The living room, spanning an amazing 45 sqm, is extremely bright due to its abundance of windows and its positioning.

The custom-made, beautiful and robust steel staircase leads to the first floor. This level includes two good-sized bedrooms facing the square, the generous master bedroom has a convenient walk-in closet section with room for a wardrobe.
Both bedrooms are fitted with large sliding glass doors, again allowing daylight to stream in and creating an excellent indoor-outdoor flow. The bedrooms also offer a view of the square and the future canal.
The bathroom is extremely spacious and fully-equipped, with a walk-in shower, bathtub, double vanity and a second toilet. This level also includes a storage room with the laundry station.

The beautiful loft at the front of the second floor gives a view of the water of The New Houthaven.
This space can be divided to your own wishes. A space to relax and enjoy the sunset, a workspace or create a third bedroom. The artist impressions in the presentation and the alternative floor plan provide plenty of possibilities and inspiration!
